Sask. Advocates Blast ‘pray the gay away’ Methods Aimed at ‘converting’ LGBTI People

Advocates in Saskatchewan are calling on the province to ban therapies meant to make people reject LGBTI identities. Conversion or reparative therapies are defined as any practice, from counselling to prayer, that tries to change someone’s sexual orientation to heterosexual. These methods are discredited and opposed by the Canadian Psychological Association as lacking scientific proof and resulting in low self-esteem, anxiety and depression. Manitoba, Ontario and Nova Scotia already have laws banning such therapies and an Alberta MLA recently announced they were writing a private members bill to do the same in that province.
